Hi, I'm Steve! I'm a giant, friendly teddy-bear-wolf-thing. Not new to the fediverse but new to this instance. I'm a former computer science professor living just outside of Pittsburgh, currently working towards earning my OSCP certification.

When I was in college I started with a comp sci major and minor in math. When I finished 5 years later, I had a math and comp sci double-major, and a philosophy and theatre double-minor. I went to grad school around the time of the dot-com bubble-burst, and got a MSci in comp sci, and got into teaching. 10 years later I went back to school for an MDiv in theology, and ended up going back to teaching comp sci. I've "joked" that I'm in my 40's and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

I'm married to @artemis and @owashii, and I'm the luckiest wuff ever because I have the bestest partners ever. =^w^=

I've a wide variety of hobbies and interests, including video games, hording books and vintage tech, and sewing/costuming. I use Pop!_OS, Kali, and Windows 10.

:vim: is better than emacs or nano. There, I said it.​

I'm impressed with my husband's ability to take pictures of the cat without exposing what a complete disaster the living room currently is.

Dear Fedi, I'm 200€ overdrawn this month and I'm only paid in 10 days. I have nothing left to eat and haven't eaten in 2 days.

Anything helps! Thank you so much! 🙏🏼

money request, we need a new motherboard :boost_requested: 

Hey so!

We tried building a desktop several months ago and it never worked. Just seemed to be dead, won't turn on.

But we tested our PSU - with a multimeter, even - and it seems to be working fine. So it looks like it's the motherboard.

Sooo we gotta buy a new one. The /cheapest/ ones are like $80. That's way more than we'd feel comfortable just taking out of food money.

If you can, mind helping us out?

sweardle bug 

Broke the game today with my first guess. Apparently if you have a repeated letter and only one is in the right place, it doesn't let you use that letter again in your next guess because it registers that letter as not available.

Had to clear cookies and restart, so here's what it would have looked like if it let me play through.

ph+, covid rapid test 

Still negative as we approach plague year 3. Not too surprising as I've been avoiding it like the plague.

Feeling better today. Probably had a minor 24-hour thing. In spite of just being really fucking fatigued and achy and not having any other symptoms, I might give myself a rapid test just to be on the safe side.

ph- (mild) 

Feeling generally yucky today. Combination of not sleeping well and dealing with mobile phone bullshit this morning.

I managed to push myself to get some work done, but not nearly as much as I wanted to.

Tomorrow will be better.
